One mile seaward of Rosudgeon is Acton Castle, commanding the peninsula between Stackhouse Cove (200 yards walk away, low-tide sand) and Prussia Cove, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. While on St Michael's Mount in 1772, the romantic but rheumatic seaweed expert, John Stackhouse, spotted the site for his wedding present to his betrothed, Susanna Acton. Built of granite, Grade II listed, it has formal shared gardens and lawns, slate terraces, sunken garden with pond (unfenced) and sensational sea views, including of St Michael's Mount. Rough private drive to it. Farmland all round. Coast Path. The castle is now divided into apartments. We let three. 

... Courtyard Apartment is on the ground floor (arrow 2) with its own very private, sheltered courtyard (table/chairs) and lovely right-down-the-coast-and-out-to-sea views. Entrance from the back of the castle into large hall with slate floor and utility cupboard (washing machine, tumble drier, sink); very large open-plan living/dining/kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer) with slate floor in a split-level arrangement with 2 steps dividing the comfy sofa area (TV/DVD) from the dining/kitchen area, lovely mullioned windows (window seats), electric stove and French windows to courtyard. Two bedrooms – a double with narrow door to en suite shower-room (suite), and a twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath plus hand-shower).

The Cornwall region

The End of England - the Penwith peninsula: a wild land, but much inhabited since long, long ago; and very beautiful in its wildness. The equal-top coastal drive in the West Country is along its north coast from Pendeen to Zennor to St Ives (Exmoor's sea-view road is its rival): gorse and bracken hills, granite-topped and bouldered, above you; below, small drystone-walled fields sprinkled with sheep, granite farmhouses and barns, spectacularly rocky headlands (to walk), and - if you're lucky and it's evening - a deep, deep blue sea beyond. There are Stone Age burial quoits, Bronze Age hut circles, two remarkably preserved Iron Age villages.

On the softer southern coast, Mousehole is Cornwall's prettiest fishing village, Newlyn the West Country's busiest; built into the cliffs above Porthcurno's sandy cove is the Minack Theatre - a 'must go', but wrap up warm. Sennen Cove's huge sandy beach is wonderful for children and sunsets, as well as surfing. The tall chimneys of extinct tin-mining stand strangely romantically above the sea at Botallack. All this and the light bring painters, especially to St Ives. Penzance is a good, sensible town and base with fine prom for strolling. Helicopters or a ship will take you to the Scilly Isles; the mainline railway to and from the world you left behind. Your first glimpse of St Michael's Mount is one of travelling's thrills. Go to Land's End if you must (only). All round the peninsula goes the coast path, of course - one of the very best stretches of it.


Rosudgeon: hamlet (pub, shop) a mile from the sea (beaches), 6 miles from Penzance and 3 from St Michael's Mount. Sandy beaches at Perran Sands, Marazion and Praa Sands, 2½ miles. Spectacular cliff walks via Prussia Cove (once a smugglers' favourite), 1½ miles. North coast surfing beaches and St Ives, 8. Golf nearby.
